Never look at an ugly thing twice. It is fatally easy to get accustomed to corrupting influences.
C.F.A. Voysey

The CFA Voysey Society has been founded to celebrate the achievement of the architect and designer Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857-1941), one of the leading figures in both the Arts and Crafts movement and its immediate successors. It is the Society's objective to encourage research into all aspects of Voysey's life and work and to help to maintain his legacy.
